Developing cross-platform apps for Smart TVs


Smart TVs are evolving from display devices into all-in-one computers where there is as much emphasis on the app store ecosystem as on image quality.

The big players Samsung and LG are going for the full Apple-like ecosystem, where they control not only their own hardware, but the operating system and app store that go with it. On the other hand, smaller players like Sony have chosen Google’s Android TV, to power their smart devices.

For app developers, the question is how many different OSs and ecosystems can the TV market support?

Using the free you can reduce significantly the development effort while gaining exposure in multiple platforms.
